�Heartland Humane Society relies on donations from Yankton, Clay, and Cedar counties and Wine and Whiskers is one of our largest fundraisers to date,� said Kerry Schmidt, executive director at Heartland Humane Society. �We want to thank those from the community and businesses that have already provided sponsorships and auction gifts and welcome any assistance in funding.�
Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased by contacting the Heartland Humane Society at 605-664-4244, any Heartland Humane Society board member or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations may be sent to PO Box 585, Yankton, SD 57078 or dropped off at the shelter, located at 601 � Burleigh Street in Yankton.
�This event is a chance to ensure more strays find permanent homes in 2012 and a chance to get everyone in the communities together for a great cause. We are looking forward to celebrating animals and our shelter program on Nov. 5,� Schmidt said. �We hope if you have a love for pets that you will consider joining us.�
